Considering the latest doubts about the advantages of oily fish consumption and Omega-3 supplements and the well-documented risks of mercury-tainted fish, especially for women who may become pregnant, are already pregnant or breastfeeding, and children, a safe way forward is to cover the need for Omega-3 through natural means.

Suitable foods without any negative side effects are wild fruit, berries, leafy vegetables, flaxseed, rapeseed, hempseed and walnuts and nut oils.
